A Master. China's Picasso. The People's Artist. All of these prestigious titles belong to one man, Qi Baishi. Regardless of which title precedes him, Qi Baishi is widely regarded as the most well-known and influential Chinese modern artist.
Qi Baishi: China’s Modern Master features over 40 of the artist's paintings, seal carvings and woodworks, all of which have never before been seen outside of China. These works exemplify the celebrated way in which Qi Baishi employed traditional Chinese style and technique in tandem with modern individualism and expression.
